threatening you. we don't know what happened there. that may have been what caused the fbi to be contacted by jill kelley. i'm purely speculating there. but that's where the fbi became involved and interested in the e-mail exchanges between jill kelley and general john allen. in his opinion, innocuous entirely, but that seems to be the spark that dragged him into this particular investigation. again, this senior official saying, no sexual relationship between these two people at all. >> all right. nick payton walsh for us, obviously this is having effects around the world, getting information, trickles of information pouring in from around the world. nick, appreciate your reporting, thank you. >>> let's go down to the pentagon for more on general allen's communication with jill kelley. barbara starr is there. we're hearing about tens of thousands of documents handed over to investigators, just how much contact really did kelley have with the top commander in afghanistan because the numbers sound just unbelievable, 10,000 documents. >> don't they? it sounds staggering. it might actually be
sure as heck was not entitled to see and that's why the fbi did this. late at night, fbi agents raiding mrs. broadwell's north korea home on monday. it's why a 16-month panel discussion that might never have seen the light of day at the aspen institute all of a sudden now becomes very interesting. some added cig significance, shall we saw, because mrs. broadwell talked about being in general petraeus' inner circle in afghanistan. >> and i was embedded with general petraeus in afghanistan and it was a little confusing for some of the folks there because i'm also a military reservice, so a will the of my former peers didn't know how to treat me. was i major broadwell or journalist broadwell? i had to follow very clear lines of disclosure. i felt like i was held to a higher level of accountability because i could lose my clearance, yet i was entrust ed on this opportunity to sit in with meetings with general petraeus, listen to classified chatter of terrorist talk. >> boy. terrorist talk. just chatter. i'll just sit in on that. that's kind of a big deal. so from all we know, the affair bet
complained to the fbi last spring when paula broadwell was having an affair with petraeus allegedly harassed her with jealous e-mails. petraeus admitted the affair with broadwell but denies any elicit contact with kelley. so does general allen who was scheduled for a senate confirmation hearing this very week to become nato's supreme allied commander. today that's on hold, but he will continue in his position as the investigation continues. and all of that as the pentagon digs through 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails and other communications, many with kelley over a two-year period. >>> each revelation brings 100 new questions and my colleague chris lawrence joins me from the pentagon to answer some of them. chris, so many twists and turns in this story. it's hard to keep track, quite frankly. let's begin with general john allen. we're talking about 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails, many of them to jill kelley. it really seems like an incredible amount of e-mail traffic between a high-ranking general and a woman who really is just a volunteer for the military. how unusual is this? and what
to petraeus. james clapper learned of the investigation in a phone call from the fbi on election night. it's it's unclear when the fbi probe began. >> it seems that this was going on for several months and yet now it appears that they are saying that the fbi didn't realize it until election day. gener it just doesn't added a up. >> reporter: why weren't key lawmakers told sooner. >> are you going to investigate why the fbi didn't notify you before? >> yes. this could have an effect on national security. we should have been told. >> reporter: house majority leader eric cantor said an fbi leader told him about petraeus possible affair and possible security breach in october after the investigation began. a u.s. official says the general's communications were never compromised and he was never the target of the investigation. another issue, petraeus stepped down days before he was supposed to testify before a senate committee about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. micha micha michael morell will testify instead. >> we've got to get to the bottom of benghazi. i don't see how in the w
" is also reporting on the internal fbi struggle over whether to tell the white house what and whom they were investigating. it turns out the white house wasn't informed till the night of the election. three days before general petraeus resigned. on a personal level, general petraeus is telling aides and confidantes that he is devastated by the pain and suffering that he has caused. and that brings me to another piece of reporting that you need to hear for yourself. my hln colleague kyra phillips who has reported extensively on general petraeus over the years has spoken directly with him in the wake of this ruinous scandal and while he did not want to be recorded in his conversation with kyra, kyra did talk about their conversations this morning in an interview with hln's robin meade. have a listen to this. >> if of in our first conversation, had he told me he had engaged in something dishonorable, and he sought to do the honorable thing in response and that was to come forward. he was very clear that he screwed up terribly, that it was all his fault. and even that it -- that he fel
murders in l.a. and he made it to the fbi's ten most wanted list. he was nabbed thanksgiving day in guadalajara, mexico. federal authorities held a news conference. take a listen. >> catching a top ten fugitive in the fbi is a big deal. that's something that all of our fbi agents aspire to do, so for the folks back behind me to have the opportunity to be involved in that is really a big thing and i told them i wanted them to share in this press conference. >> here's one of the crimes saenz is accused of. the kidnapping, rape and murder of his own child's mother. fbi says she threatened to turn saenz in for two murders he's accused of committing in 1998. the fed says his latest job was at a hired gun for the drug cartels. >>> in the streets of egypt today, scenes just like this one. two sides clashing over president mohamed morsi's decision to grant himself sweeping new powers. the violent protests played out behind closed doors, morsi met with egypt's top judges to explain his move. these are the same judges who are now banned from overturning any decision he makes until a new co
was withholding judgment whether the fbi and the justice department were correct in not informing him over these many months that the cia director at the time, david petraeus, was already under investigation. we'll have a lot more to dissect on that as well. i want to go to capitol hill now. dana bash is standing by. here's what john mccain said earlier in the day, because i know we're already getting reaction to the president's very angry statement going after mccain and lindsey graham on their insistence they'll do whatever they can to block susan rice from potentially becoming the next secretary of state. here is what mccain said earlier. >> i've said for days, weeks that -- >> you said you haven't gott gotten -- >> it is a cover-up or gross incompeten incompetence, one of the two. can't be anything else. maybe a combination of both. the president of the united states didn't even tell the truth. >> all right, strong words. are you getting reaction on the hill to what we heard from the president, dana? >> i am. i'm getting -- first of all, let me clarify, wolf that was john mccain yester
is at the epicenter of this scandal. new this is morning she is not likely to face charges. fbi agents raided her home, taking computers and other documents earlier this week. finally, we now know the identity of the fbi agent who first investigated the whole mess. by now you probably know him as the shirtless agent, the guy who sent a shirtless photo to jill kelly, the other woman involved in this mess. fbi agents name is frederick humphries, over those supposedly harassing e-mails now linked to paula broadwell. hope you got that. >>> controversy over benghazi, as you know, has reached a boiling point, though. yesterday at his first press conference, being row elected, president obama has strong words for anyone who blames u.s. -- united nations ambassador susan rice for the benghazi response. here is what the president said. >> as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> oka
doors. you can see a lot of hubbub here. this is the senate side. we have the acting director of the fbi, the director of national intelligence and so on and played according to our susan kelly, a closed-circuit video of the compound that was attacked in benghazi which officials are hoping to clear the air or clear up why they had their initial reporting that this was a spontaneous demonstration that started the attack, the deadly attack on benghazi. we'll wait to hear from the chairman and ranking republican and speaking public in a little more than an hour. >> and soda that, i also understand that some republicans are asking for a special committee to further investigate. anything new on that? >> reporter: very interesting. nothing new in terms of whether that will actually happen. in fact, looks more and more like it is not going to happen because these republicans meaning john mccain and others don't have the support of some of their high ranking republicans like the house speaker. never mind the democrats. but what cnn's ted barrett has learned is that john mccain in particular miss
. until now we've only seen fbi agents carrying large boxes of classified documents from broadwell's home. her husband, scott, told our affiliate wsoc he had no comment but would be making a statement sometime soon. there's been one, 2 kids, and 43 bottles of olay total effects. so in spite of 185 tantrums 378 pre-dawn starts and a lot of birthdays, caroline still looks amazing. you can challenge what's possible thanks to the trusted performance of olay. 60 years, millions of women, real results.

. that probably won't end it. as we know, there have been congressional hearings and also we have the fbi investigation and then the state department investigation as well. until those conclude, it may be very difficult to really put an end to this debate. >> jill dougherty, thanks so much. >>> meanwhile, president barack obama delivered his annual thanksgiving address giving thanks for the blessings we all share as americans. >> thanksgiving is a chance to put it all in perspective, to remember that despite our differences, we are and always will be americans first and foremost. today we give thanks for blessings that are all too rare in this world. the ability to spend time with the ones we love to say what we wep want, that already brave men and women and to tell our children that here in america no dream is too big if they're willing to work for it. >> the president also expressed his gratitude to fema. first responders and volunteers who have come to the aid of superstorm sandy victims. >> i'm jason mcclendon from alabama. i want to give a shout out to my wife and my two sons and fam

california have been arrested over an alleged terror plot. the fbi says they were planning to join al qaeda and the taliban in violent jihad. authorities say they have been making arrangements over skype to head to afghanistan for stage one terror training like the training in this taliban video. american military staff and bases overseas allegedly were among their targets. authorities say they were caught after divulging their plans to someone who turned out to be an fbi informant. >>> she's known as the soccer mom madam. and today anna christina got a jail sentence for her crimes. she was let go for time served and good behavior because she spent four months at new york's rikers island. she is the suburban mom of four who ran a multimillion dollar prostitution ring on new york's wealthy upper east side. >>> there is a lot going on in israel and the middle east. there say lot more coverage coming. and up next, we will have special coverage of breaking news from the middle east, and that begins right now. >>> i'm anderson cooper reporting from gaza city. i welcome our viewers on cnn in the
. despite being under investigation by the fbi and the house ethics committee. now, jackson has resigned, citing concerns for his health, but his resignation does not come without questions including about the allegations of possible misuse of campaign funds. chicago sun times washington bureau chief lynn sweet joins me from chicago. good to have you with us. >> thank you. >> lynn, first, can you tell us if we know any more about what exacerbated the health problem back in june? because it seems look a lot of the variables, a lot of the root causes had been in place for some time before june. >> well, you know, there were investigations of him, there is another figure that was a player in the overall broader investigation of former now imprisoned governor rod blagojevich that had pled guilty to a charge at about the time that jesse jackson jr. was started being absent and eventually checked into mayo. so we don't know exactly when he knew about this second criminal probe, the one dealing with his campaign finances, but it was just a -- it is the -- when he went into treatment for his men
a spontaneous demonstration, why the fbi investigators questioned people who were survivors who told them there was no demonstration and that was not -- we learned by ambassador rice and not learned by the president. >> do you put more blame on the president or miss rice? >> the president is ultimately responsible. >> reporter: so that was all about the president. that's what john mccain is emphasizing right now. here is what we understand they're really going to press susan rice on behind closed doors, carol. that is we know after -- the big issue has been after the attack in september, on the sunday shows susan rice did not mention the fact that there was a possibility that an al qaeda affiliate was behind the attack. in the past two weeks, we were told by the intelligence community the reason is because they wanted that to remain classified. they didn't want it to be out there because they didn't want to compromise sources and methods. what's going to happen behind closed doors this morning and starting as we speak is the acting cia director is going with susan rice to talk about why s
, what happened is he told the senators that it was actually the fbi who took al qaeda references out of the unclassified talking points. only to call back several hours later saying, oops, i was wrong, it wasn't the fbi, it was the cia. here is what lindsey graham said about that. >> i can't help but feel incredibly disappointed that we were told something at 10:00 a.m. that couldn't withstand scrutiny for six hours. and is totally inconsistent with what we were told the day before. we have five different explanations of who changed the talking points to take out benghazi. and four different reasons. this is becoming a joke. >> so what these meetings least this particular issue has done is added fuel to the fire and it is not like, you needed to add any more fuel to the fire, especially for senators like lindsey graham who is already really publicly outraged about a lot of issues dealing with the benghazi attack. >> this is just one more. one more. dana bash, thank you. >>> after trashing the hit tv show "two and a half men," the actor angus jones, now back tracking from his controve
. a lot more guns on the first black friday last week. more people asked the fbi if they could own a gun than ever before on a single day. take a look at this. black friday 2012 almost 155,000 people submitted an fbi firearms background check request, and that is up, way up, from previous black fridays. this is really the best way to measure gun sales since the government doesn't track actual purchases. gun store owners say customers are driven by one major issue. they belief a democratic president will crack down on gun ownership or even take away their guns. people are stockpiling ammunition. they did it back in 2008. according to store owners, they're doing it again. joining us from new york is craig whitney. he is a former foreign correspondent and editor of the morning times. also wrote a book living with guns, a liberal's case for the second amendment. >> ever since president obama was elected national rifle association is saying that what he really wants to do is take their guns away from them eventually. people think you better buy your gun now or you may not get a chance. he has
of the cia told republican senators that it was actually the fbi that changed those controversial unclassified talking points that susan rice used, then called back six hours later and said, never mind, i was wrong, it was us, the cia who did it. i just interviewed lindsey graham who was in that meeting who is very baffled and very perplexed that somebody as high-ranking as the cia director, acting cia director would tell them something about an issue that is so controversial and such a political -- so politically controversial that is absolutely wrong. >> a lot of unanswered questions, a lotf concerns there and obviously very controversial. whether or not this moves forward, the potential nomination for susan rice. dana, excellent reporting, as always. of course, we're going to check back in with you as you continue to meet with members of congress. i want to talk about something that senator collins talked about, her concerns about the readiness of susan rice, given that she was assistant secretary for african affairs in the bombing of east africa of 1998. i spoke with our natio
